"Shitloads Of Money" as written by and Phair....
Louis is probably thirty years old but he looks like a solid 45
Louis says he's got a headache
I look in his eyes, and I believe him

The big L.K.'s and the gangster disciples
Louis can't think of who else could take over
But he just can't get up in the morning
A genuine face, braced for survival

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have
Don't really see it that way
But if you can give 'em each one wish
How much do you want to bet?
They'd which success for themselves and their friends
And that would include lots of money

Don't know how many times you were stuck in the morning
You just couldn't move, though you mother was calling
You know what you need is a Lotto revival
A train flashes by and you're lost in a spiral

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have
Don't really see it that way
But if you can give 'em each one wish
How much do you want to bet?
They'd which success for themselves and their friends
And that would include lots of money

Take the train on up to the zoo
Don't look back on what you've been through
Cause everyone's got a Monday

It looks like shit and must be America
It burns so quick, and it must be America

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have
Don't really see it that way
But if you can give 'em each one wish
How much do you want to bet?
They'd which success for themselves and their friends
And that would include lots of money
I would surely include lots of money
You've got to have shitloads of M-O-N-E-why, money

    General CommentI think this song is a about a quandry that Liz was caught in. On the one hand she wanted to remain true to the indy world that made her what she is but she is also tempted to "cash in" on what made her succesful by creating songs that are catchy for a mainstream audience and getting paid well for it. "Take the train on up to the zoo" must be a metaphor for having a bigger audience and not caring what the indy scene is saying about her.

    General CommentI would say the lyrics are pretty straightforward. The simple reason I don't agree with sav127 is that this song was actually written before Exile in Guyville.

    General CommentThis song is about how people often talk about how "Money's not everything in the world", "Happiness is more important" etc. etc., yet still secretly love it.
